Where Does TCU Rank In The New CFN Poll?

The new CollegeFootballNews.com Top 25 Poll is out! Are the Frogs Top 10 material? Where do they rank compared to Utah? Find out inside BigPurpleNation.com!

13. TCU (9-1) Last Week: 13 W, at UNLV 44-14

Next game: at Utah

The Ranking Should Be Higher Because …the defense has been dominant. Simply dominant. While Utah and BYU have struggled a bit in league play, the Horned Frogs haven't allowed more than 14 points in five weeks. Winning at UNLV, a team trying to throw everything out there to win, couldn't do much.

The Ranking Should Be Lower Because ... the BYU win was tremendous, but was it as impressive as it really seemed? Considering the Cougars had problems with teams like Colorado State (as did TCU) and haven't been consistent, that might not be that great a win to hang the hat on.

1. Florida (7-1)
2. Alabama (9-0)
3. Texas Tech (9-0)
4. Penn State (9-0)
5. Texas (8-1)
6. Oklahoma (8-1)
7. Oklahoma State (8-1)
8. USC (7-1)
9. Missouri (7-2)
10. Georgia (7-2)
11. Ohio State (7-2)
12. LSU (6-2)
14. South Carolina (7-3)

15. Utah (9-0) Last Week: 14
W, at New Mexico 13-10
Next game: TCU

The Ranking Should Be Higher Because … the defense has gotten better over the last few weeks. Forget about running the ball on this bunch, and while the offense might be a bit erratic, it comes through when needed.

The Ranking Should Be Lower Because ... the best win this year has been against Air Force. There's been too much respect given from the start because the Utes beat Michigan. Now comes TCU and the first real test of the year.

16. Michigan State (7-2)

17. Boise State (7-0)
W, at New Mexico State
Next game: Utah State

The Ranking Should Be Higher Because … talk about not skipping a beat, no one's coming close to the Broncos right now. The defense has allowed seven points or fewer in six of the eight games.

The Ranking Should Be Lower Because ... the world needs more than a win over an Oregon team that was trying to find itself after losing all its quarterback options. The second best win is over San Jose State.

18. Virginia (5-4)
19. North Carolina (6-2)
20. Georgia Tech (7-2)
21. Kansas (6-3)
22. Florida State (6-2)
23. Miami (6-3)
24. Northwestern (7-2)
25. Minnesota (7-2)


30.) BYU
53.) Air Force
